Target Audience & Course Sessions
Age levels Preschool    Primary    Jr. High    Sr. High     Adult
Normal number/length of sessions If the curriculum's normal lesson plan is followed, there will be 5 class sessions each lasting about one hour
In the judgement of the reviewer:
 using these materials, or even just one session from them, a reasonable, coherent and self-contained class can be offered in a single session of about an hour.
 using these materials, a class can be offered that runs for at least two sessions.
Target audience:
 Interfaith - addressed people of many faiths
 Judeo-Christian - addressed to Jews & Christians
 Christian - addressed explicitly to Christians
 Not explicity faith-based - not much religious content
Note: The reviewer says that this curriculum is especially appropriate for members of the denomination or agency that developed it (Eco-Justice Working Group/Nat. Council of Churches). For example, it may explore a denominational policy statement. The reviewer also believes that it is possible for groups outside that tradition to make good use these materials.
